I can’t believe it.. Daft Punk’s calling it quits. Has it really been nearly 30 years? Daft Punk released a video today called “Epilogue”, showcasing the pair in the desert. One flips a switch on the other’s back, who walks away and then later explodes….
When I think of Reznor/Ross lately, I’m reminded of “In Motion” from their Academy Award winning score for The Social Network, the dark piano tones in “Hypomania” from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, or the slow building craziness of “Technically, Missing” from the Gone Girl score.. You know, dark things. Strange things.
“Just Us”, however, off the score for Disney/Pixar’s Soul is just sweet. It’s the kind of song you could play during a sunny bike ride, or relaxing by the beach. It’s a beautiful piece, and I hope that the album gives them some awards recognition next year.
